Upcoming Bay Area #TeenScience Events

California Academy of Science
“Rainforests of the World” exhibit at the California Academy of Sciences Museum

If you’re interested in pursuing a career in STEM or just have a keen curiosity to learn more about how the world works then you may be excited to learn about the science related activities happening around the Bay Area towards the end of this summer. The activities and events that we will be looking at are mostly accessible via public transportation and cater to teens and the youth.

At the end of the week, on Friday, August 9th, the California Academy of Sciences will be hosting a #TeenScienceNight at their museum in Golden Gate Park that will run from 6 PM to 9 PM. Attendees will be able to visit exhibits and meet local organizations that focus on science, technology, art and music. To be admitted you must be between ages 13 – 18 as no parents or other adults are allowed. The event is free but you still must reserve tickets in advance to attend. To get to Golden Gate Park from Vallejo on public transportation you can take the Red Line to El Cerrito del Norte then take a Millbrae train to Civic Center BART then take SFMTA 7 to Lincoln Way & 9th Avenue. On the way back you will need a ride to get home from the Vallejo Transit Center as no local routes will be running by then.

In the fall, the annual Bay Area Science Festival will run from October 25 to November 2 and will primarily consist of three “discovery days” — two simultaneous ones in the North Bay (Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa) and the East Bay (CSU East Bay Campus in Hayward) on October 26 from 10 AM to 4 PM and one at Oracle Park on November 2 from 11 AM to 4:30 PM, which all will feature various science exhibits and hands-on activities. These discovery day events are completely free. Since Santa Rosa and Hayward are fairly the same distance from Vallejo and there is no direct public transportation to Santa Rosa, we recommend attending the East Bay discovery day. To avoid getting lost, we’ve provided transit directions to the CSU East Bay Campus and directions to Oracle Park.

Stay curious!
